Victoria Steadman,

Hons. B.A., M.A., Applied Psychology

Clinical Associate/ Psychometrist

WSIB Team Lead

I strongly consider working in a helping profession to be a central part of my life's purpose. My journey in psychology began at Nipissing University, where I earned my bachelor’s degree in psychology with a minor in sociology. In 2017, I joined the Diagnostic Sleep Clinic in North Bay as a sleep technologist, where my interest in sleep psychology blossomed. This passion led me to pursue a master’s degree at Laurentian University, focusing on both sleep and clinical psychology.

Since 2022, I've worked as a supervised Clinical Associate at Bay Psychology, with aspirations to become a Psychological Associate within our practice. Additionally, I've taken on the role of Team Lead for our Workplace Safety and Insurance Board (WSIB) portfolio, aiding Ontario workers recovering from workplace injuries.

My services encompass individual and group psychotherapies, along with diagnostic assessments. I adopt an eclectic, person-centered approach, integrating various techniques into my treatment model while ensuring they're evidence-based and aligned with ethical standards. Your safety, informed consent, and access to top-tier psychological care are paramount to me.

Within my practice, I specialize in trauma-informed care, incorporating Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), Emotion-Focused Therapy (EFT), Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (CBT), and humanistic psychology interventions. I'm trained in Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT) and Prolonged Exposure, with additional expertise in working with First Responder populations. My focus lies in aiding individuals grappling with sleep issues, trauma, anxiety, and depression.

I view psychology as a dynamic field, continuously engaging in training and consultation to stay abreast of developments. My therapeutic style is characterized by empathy, empowerment, mutual respect, and occasional humor. Collaboration is key, as I strive to tailor our therapeutic environment to meet your unique needs and expectations.

Outside of work, I cherish time with loved ones (including my pets), indulge in hobbies like video games, playing music, volleyball, reading, baking, and painting, and find solace in completing intricate puzzles while listening to my vinyl collection late into the night.

Above all, I believe in the resilience of the human spirit and that we all have the strength to overcome suffering, no matter how helpless we might feel. I am committed to offering non-oppressive support to aid you on your healing journey. I look forward to the opportunity to work alongside you!
